Shawna is “on the edge.” As an active celibate member of the LDS church Shawna describes the happiness church activity has brought over the years. She also feels the deep burden of alienation and heartache as she strives to maintain her activity while watching other members of the church have — in marriage and children — what she feels she can not have. A heartfelt story shared with the hope that it will get better for herself and others.
